3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at RBWG grand tasting! Pours a slightly cloudy copper brown with minimal head or lacing. Aroma is malty and sweet, but not crazy on either and no hint of the booze. Taste follows, thick and full, light carbonation. Very nice, especially for a barley wine.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange-waxed 2013 bottle pours deep red-amber with a decent head.
Attractive aroma is a bit too flowery, giving a hint of perfume.
Alcohol is partly hidden, but still drinks like 10% ABV.
Feel: a little hot on the tongue, this would no doubt benefit from some aging.
Medium body and carbonation.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber pour with almost no head. Strong caramel sweetness and grapefruit hops. Oily, sticky palate. A little too sweet and the alcohol isn’t as we’ll integrated as some other barley wines.

Haven't liked any barleywines before. But 3 Floyd's as usual, changed my mind. Draft at Eataly. Cloudy light red color. Sweet raisin plum and fruity taste. Hides the high ABV well too.

2013 Orange Wax ... Hazy amber pour with a thin off white head and sticky lacing.... aroma of lemons and mangos/lots of citrusy hops ..... taste is of deep caramel malts, mango, orange and citrusy hops with a bitter hoppy/malty balance of flavors .... bit of warming booze in the finish .... mouthfeel is lively bitter and slick with a medium body .... def aging one of these to see how the hops mellow out
